After the Olympics

Here are some fascinating photos of Olympic sites, after the games.  You'd expect some of them to fall into disrepair after some time but it happens surprisingly quickly.  Many of the sites are single use only and after the games stop, that use goes away.  The kayak section in Beijing is a perfect example. 
Any cities that bid on the games should keep pictures like this firmly in mind.

I found this facinating. I wanted to see if they had any pictures of the Helsinki pool during the olympics. It looks so small. All the info I found shows they held the events at a different pool that they still use.

So more searching.. I found a picture of the pool in the article during the Olympics and it is the same pool. Now I am confused.
